Launch of the COVID-19 Disability Rights Monitor & Survey
With the endorsements of the UN Special Rapporteurs on the Right to Health and Rights of Persons with Disabilities, a coalition of six disability rights organisations launched an international monitoring initiative entitled “COVID-19 Disability Rights Monitor” to conduct rapid independent monitoring of state measures concerning persons with disabilities.
They are requesting the testimonies via a survey of people with disabilities and their representative organisations worldwide. The survey aims to collect information about what states are doing to protect core rights of persons with disabilities including the rights to life, access to health and essential services. Please fill this in yourself and/or circulate it to your networks. You can fill it in here.
